  • To the porter family I send my condolences and send my love to you all. I’m sorry to hear about your Dad. He was a great neighbor to my parents and especially to my Mom after my Dad died. I love listening to Mom and Layne talk over coffee every morning when I was there. He was a good man and will be missed by many. May you be comforted during this difficult time and may you always keep your memories of your Dad alive in your hearts. I wish I could be there but win’t be able to be there.
    Always with much love for you all, Beverly G Casper
